Michael and Phillip - So sorry to hear of the passing of your mom... I fondly remember her kindness and good sense of humor when we were growing up together on Prospect Terrace. Please accept my condolences. I'll keep her in my prayers. Mike Golabek

Mom was a very kind, generous and gracious person. She was always there when we needed a hand with the girls and actually acted like we were the ones doing her a favor because she got to spend time with her granddaughters.
Her Thanksgiving dinners were amazing and her turkey gravy was the best! Sitting around chatting for hours afterwards was a lot of fun for everyone there.
She had a great sense of style that was uniquely her own.
Mom will be very much missed by all who were privileged to have known and loved her. I take great consolation in the fact that she's reunited with her parents and sister, Mary - shopping to her heart's content once again!
